- The oft-repeated story goes like this: The Selva family, owners of Bodegas Olivares and its 140 year-old Monastrell vineyard (some of the oldest un-grafted vines in the world), happily sold off their fruit to bulk producers until 1998, when a Spanish sommelier tasted the sweet wine they made for family consumption and proclaimed it the best thing since cupcakes. It's mind-blowing.
